FMS 2000MM DH-2 Beaver PNP

FMS Beaver 2000m

  The new, giant FMS Beaver 2000mm combines stunning beauty and realism with upgrades, updated technology, and new features. The largest propeller aircraft offered in the FMS line is a giant scale gem that offers incredible value. Not only does it look fantastic, the Beaver performs superbly. The thrust force can reach more than 5000g, the flying weight is only 3800g. With a classic, elegant black and yellow trim scheme, the Beaver combines breath-taking visuals with its impressive performance specs.  Capable of leisurely low and mid-speed flight, this model still maintains surprising aerobatic qualities.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Easier than ever.
With the latest multi-connect technology, FMS has streamlined the wiring system, making it easier to install and eliminating wiring problems. Easier plane transport is facilitated by the new connectors that allow pilots to remove and replace wings with just one step. All channels on each wing are brought together in one port. The customers can install the main wing set simply by inserting the port and then securing with four screws.                                                                                     Night Flyer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  To make flying the Beaver more fun at night, there are 5 LED lights. Light up the night with LEDs located in front of the main wing set and at the rear of the fuselage.                                                                                                          Scale detail.
The aileron and flap are to scale. The latest EPO52 foam material as well as the hollow main wing greatly alleviates the airplane weight.                                                                                                                                                                    Upgradable.
Electric retracts and floats are available to add to the package. These retracts will make your model ready to tow banners and gliders. With optional floats, the Beaver’s high-powered motor is ready to be put to the test of a water take off.                                                                                                                                        History
The DHC-2 Beaver is a general purpose bush plane developed by de Havilland Canada. Though originally used for cargo/passenger hauling and crop dusting, it was also adopted by the United States Armed Forces as a utility aircraft and search and rescue unit. The single-engine, high-wing, propeller-driven STOL aircraft appeared in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars and was popular among front line men. When production finally ceased in 1967, only 1,657 DHC-2 Beavers had been built.

P-38L Lightning “Allied Green” 1600mm (63″) Wingspan RC Airplane 6CH with LED Retracts PNP

 What would become one of the best fighters in World War II was created more by happenstance than by design. The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was originally designed as a bomber-interceptor and was never intended to be a fighter. Weight was kept to a minimum and it was far more advanced and faster than its U.S. counterparts, the Bell P-39 Airacobraand Curtiss P-40 Warhawk. It caught the attention of the US Army Air Corps (USAAC) very quickly and it would be in great demand. It was faster than the Zero—even on one engine. It shot down more Japanese airplanes than any other fighter during World War II—seven of the top scoring USAAF aces in the Pacific flew the P-38. It was as versatile as thede Havilland Mosquito, but it was the only truly successful twin-engine fighter of World War II.                                                                                                                                                                                             The XP-38 Lightning prototype was about as graceful looking as a 1930s airplane could get, but its clean lines were deceiving and disguised some major faults.


                                     What would become one of the best fighters in World War II was created more by happenstance than by design.

It was as versatile as thede Havilland Mosquito, but it was the only truly successful twin-engine fighter of World War II.                                                                  It was basically a hand-built airplane and was never meant to be mass produced. All skin sections were butt-joined using flush riveting, and all flight controls were metal covered. The total order was expected to be only fifty aircraft, so when orders started coming in by the hundreds, Lockheed had to scramble to find room to increase production. Over lunch, Lockheed’s president, Bob Gross, made a deal to buy the old 3-G whiskey distillery for $20,000 to make room for an additional production line. However, initial production was slow and by the time Pearl Harbor was attacked, on December 7, 1941, only 69 Lightnings were completed.                                                                        When first introduced in 1939, the Lightning was able to fly a steady course at 413 mph (665 km/h) making it the fastest production airplane in the world and it remained one of the fastest climbers right up to the end of the WW II. It wasn’t as fast as theMesserschmitt Me 209 which was able to attain a record 469 mph (755 km/h), but this record setting machine was built for the purposes of promoting theMesserschmitt Bf 109 and only four aircraft were built.                                                                                                      In 1937, the USAAC sent out specification X-608 to the leading aircraft manufacturers for a new pursuit aircraft. It would be a radical departure for existing fighters and required the following specifications:                                                                                                         • 360 mph (580 km/h) airspeed at 20,000 ft. (6,095 m).
• 290 mph (467 km/h) airspeed at sea level.
• Sustain full power for 1 hour at 20,000 ft. (6,095 m).
• Reach 20,000 ft. (6,095 m) in 6 minutes.
• Takeoff and land within 2,200 ft. (670 m) while clearing a 50 ft. (15 m) obstacle.                                                                    

 Lockheed had previously competed in 1936, but lost against Bell’s XFM-1 Airacuda. Lockheed was new in the military aircraft market and by competing against Boeing and Douglas, many felt they it was overstepping its boundaries. However, this view wasn’t shared by Lockheed’s president Robert E. Gross and he gave the go ahead for his design team to proceed with a plan.

    Lockheed’s chief engineer, Hall Hibbard and the then young Clarence “Kelly” Johnson, and their design team would come up with one of the boldest departures from traditional American fighter development. Hibbard realized that there wasn’t an engine in the world that would meet all of the specifications for speed, range, climb, firepower and other specifications. What they needed was two engines. Hibbard looked at the new Allison V-1710 engine which had just been tested to deliver 1,000 hp (745 kW) for 150 hours. Their airplane would require two of these engines and the aircraft design was narrowed down to six selections. With the final choice decided, the Lightning was a complete break from conventional airframe design, power and armament. It had twice the power and was almost twice the size of its predecessors. It had four .50 caliber machine guns plus a 20 mm cannon—enough firepower to sink a ship—and sometimes did. By locating the guns in the central fuselage pod, this eliminated a need for propeller synchronization and the twin booms provided extra space for the engines, landing gear and turbochargers.

F-22 Raptor High Performance Version Gray Camo 64mm 4S EDF Ducted Fan Jet RC Airplane

  The F-22 Raptor Is the World’s Best Fighter (And It Has a Secret Weapon That Is Out in the Open)                                                                                                                                                              With Russia and China deploying advanced new fighters and surface-to-air missiles (SAM), the task of gaining and maintaining air superiority over an increasingly more lethal battlespace falls to a small and elite group of U.S. Air Force pilots flying the mighty Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.                                                                                                                           Conceived during the waning years of the Cold War, the stealthy high-flying supersonically cruising Raptor was designed to defeat the most fearsome weapons the Soviet Union could hurl at the United States and NATO during a third world war in Europe. However, with the end of the Cold War and subsequent 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, the F-22 was left without a mission—or so it was thought. Indeed, the second Bush and Obama administrations cancelled the F-22 program in 2008 after only 195 aircraft—187 production planes—were ordered because they made the assumption that high-end state-on-state conflicts were a relic of the past. However, as it is becoming increasingly apparent, they were wrong.                                                                                                                     Earlier this year, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter spoke about a return to great power competition. “We will be prepared for a high-end enemy. That’s what we call full spectrum. In our budget, our plans, our capabilities and our actions, we must demonstrate to potential foes, that if they start a war, we have the capability to win. Because the force that can deter conflict, must show that it can dominate a conflict,” Carter said, speaking at the Washington Economic Club in February. “In this context, Russia and China are our most stressing competitors. They have developed and are continuing to advance military systems that seek to threaten our advantages in specific areas. And in some case, they are developing weapons and ways of wars that seek to achieve their objectives rapidly, before they hope, we can respond.”                                              Indeed, even after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia protected the best of its military-industrial capabilities as much as it could during the economic and social meltdown of the 1990s. Despite its severe problems, Russia managed to develop and field advanced weapon systems such as the Su-35S Flanker-E, S-300V4 and S-400 among others. Meanwhile, a rising China modernized its forces in earnest—developing new fighters and new SAM system such as the formidable J-16 and HQ-9. Thus, while Washington took its eyes off potential challengers to focus on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, leaders in Beijing and Moscow continued to modernize their militaries to keep American forces at bay in the event of a future conflict.                                                            

Why America Needs the F-22 Raptor (Now More Than Ever):

Now, with voices on the left and the right clamoring for action in Syria, where the Kremlin is propping up its long-time ally—the Assad regime—the Pentagon finds that it has to rely on its tiny fleet of 186 F-22 Raptors if the call comes to establish a no-fly zone or a safe-zone in that war-torn nation. The Raptor is the only operational combat aircraft that the United States operates that Washington can rely on to take-on and defeat advanced air defenses such as the Pantsir-S1, S-300V4 and S-400 that Moscow has dispatched to Syria. Moreover, it is the only aircraft in the U.S. Air Force inventory that possesses a huge performance overmatch against late generation Russian fighters such as the Su-30SM Flanker-H and Su-35S Flanker-E, both of which the Kremlin has also deployed to the region.                                                                                                                                          “Our role is to kick down the door,” 1st Fighter Wing commander, Col. Pete Fesler—a veteran F-22 Raptor pilot—told me during a visit to Langley Air Force Base in Virginia. “We are, without a doubt, on the leading edge of whatever force you’re going to send because we have an airplane that has a capability that no one else has.”                                       

F-22 Raptor High Performance Version Gray Camo 64mm 4S EDF Ducted Fan Jet RC Airplane PNP (No Radio, battery, charger)                                                                                                                     Introduced in 2005, the F-22 Raptor is the US Air Force’s ultimate super-maneuverable, stealth fighter aircraft. The clean lines, stealth profile, and scale details are all captured in this exceptional 64mm EDF Jet. Simplicity and durability were major design factors with this model.

Great Planes Giant Revolver 50cc Radio Controlled Gasoline Powered Almost-Ready-to-Fly Sport Airplane

Step up in simplicity, style and size!

Can you imagine a giant-scale project that assembles as quickly and easily as a .40- or .60-size ARF? The folks at Great Planes did — and that’s why the Revolver 50 cc is, hands-down, the best gas giant model around.

If there’s an easy, effortless way to do it, Great Planes has included it in Revolver 50 cc design. Prehinged control surfaces, simpler ways to attach and remove the wings and horizontal stabs, painted fiberglass parts — the Revolver 50 cc has them all, along with big-plane presence, impressive performance and agile aerobatic handling.                                                              Wing panels with prehinged ailerons slide onto a carbon-fiber joiner tube and “lock” in place with a few turns of a nylon thumbscrew.                                                                                          Like the wing panels, the prehinged stabilizer halves slide onto a joiner tube. Each half attaches with just two screws — a feature that streamlines setup and removal and simplifies storage.                                                                                                                                                  The hatch arrives with a painted pilot figure and clear canopy already installed, providing time savings as well as easy access to radio gear and the fuel tank.                              A factory-installed ring offers an “invisible” way to secure the painted fiberglass cowl. An aluminum spinner is included, as part of a complete, high-quality hardware package.            Revolver pluses also include sturdy aluminum gear and fiberglass wheel pants that mount with just two screws.                                                                                                                              The Revolver 50 cc offers the same handling as the .40 and .60 versions: agile, predictable and ideal for aerobatics. Its weight and seven and a half foot wingspan make easier to handle in the wind and easier to track in the air.                                                                                                                                                              Built for strength, lightness and good looks!
The Revolver 50 cc features a built-up fuselage and tail surfaces,
balsa-sheeted foam-core wings and factory-applied MonoKote film.

FMS 1400mm B25 Mitchell -Green PNP

  The North American B25 Mitchell was a twin-engine medium bomber that served in every theatre of WW2. The aircraft was safe and forgiving to fly and featured a formidable array of firepower. It was also used to strike the first ever bomber attack on mainland Japan that boosted moral of the American war machine after the devastation caused by the attack at Pearl Harbour.                                                                                                                                                                                                FMS has chosen the B25-D which featured upgraded supercharge radial engines and increased armament and first flew in January 1942. This is a highly detailed and feature rich model which includes: 5 painted pilots, 11 machine guns, high power LED Navigational lights, worm drive retracts with gear door sequence controller.                                                                                                                                                     Taxiing and ground handling is great using the steerable nose wheel and makes for stress free take offs. Once in the air, all control surfaces are very effective and coupled to the light wing loading and excellent power make this a winning package.                                                                                                                                                                           Confidence inspiring flight predictability will enable any budding twin enthusiastic pilot to really push the flight envelope and wring this aircraft out. At the same time it’s a walk in the park to bring it back down for a beautiful scale landing, all this without the use of flaps!

F4U-1D Corsair 60cc ARF 85.5″

Designed to operate from aircraft carriers and/or land-based facilities, the F4U-1D Corsair was a force to be reckoned with to the Japanese during WWII. With its gull wing design, impressive looks and power, the Corsair was one of the most recognizable WWII aircraft.                                                                                                            The Hangar 9® F4U-1D Corsair is a giant-scale masterpiece for 60cc power plants that delivers scale details worthy of being called competition grade. Its scale outline, impressive scale appearance, and Hangar 9 performance, make this an exciting warbird to show off at the field. The construction is primarily wood with fully balsa-sheeted areas, but the outer wing panels and control surfaces (except the three-panel flaps) feature exposed ribs like was done with the full-scale fighter.                                                                                                                                            The three-piece wing features a robust fiberglass structure in the center which houses the custom main retracts built by Robart Mfg. (sold separately).

Key Features

F-16C Grey Super Scale 90mm with 12 Blade EDF Ducted Fan Jet RC Airplane PNP

Mission:
The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft. It is highly maneuverable and has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack. It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations.                                                                             Features:
In an air combat role, the F-16’s maneuverability and combat radius (distance it can fly to enter air combat, stay, fight and return) exceed that of all potential threat fighter aircraft. It can locate targets in all weather conditions and detect low flying aircraft in radar ground clutter. In an air-to-surface role, the F-16 can fly more than 500 miles (860 kilometers), deliver its weapons with superior accuracy, defend itself against enemy aircraft, and return to its starting point. An all-weather capability allows it to accurately deliver ordnance during non-visual bombing conditions.

In designing the F-16, advanced aerospace science and proven reliable systems from other aircraft such as the F-15 and F-111 were selected. These were combined to simplify the airplane and reduce its size, purchase price, maintenance costs and weight. The light weight of the fuselage is achieved without reducing its strength. With a full load of internal fuel, the F-16 can withstand up to nine G’s — nine times the force of gravity — which exceeds the capability of other current fighter aircraft.                                                                The cockpit and its bubble canopy give the pilot unobstructed forward and upward vision, and greatly improved vision over the side and to the rear. The seat-back angle was expanded from the usual 13 degrees to 30 degrees, increasing pilot comfort and gravity force tolerance. The pilot has excellent flight control of the F-16 through its “fly-by-wire” system. Electrical wires relay commands, replacing the usual cables and linkage controls. For easy and accurate control of the aircraft during high G-force combat maneuvers, a side stick controller is used instead of the conventional center-mounted stick. Hand pressure on the side stick controller sends electrical signals to actuators of flight control surfaces such as ailerons and rudder.

Avionics systems include a highly accurate enhanced global positioning and inertial navigation systems, or EGI, in which computers provide steering information to the pilot. The plane has UHF and VHF radios plus an instrument landing system. It also has a warning system and modular countermeasure pods to be used against airborne or surface electronic threats. The fuselage has space for additional avionics systems.                             Background:
The F-16A, a single-seat model, first flew in December 1976. The first operational F-16A was delivered in January 1979 to the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.

The F-16B, a two-seat model, has tandem cockpits that are about the same size as the one in the A model. Its bubble canopy extends to cover the second cockpit. To make room for the second cockpit, the forward fuselage fuel tank and avionics growth space were reduced. During training, the forward cockpit is used by a student pilot with an instructor pilot in the rear cockpit.

All F-16s delivered since November 1981 have built-in structural and wiring provisions and systems architecture that permit expansion of the multirole flexibility to perform precision strike, night attack and beyond-visual-range interception missions. This improvement program led to the F-16C and F-16D aircraft, which are the single- and two-place counterparts to the F-16A/B, and incorporate the latest cockpit control and display technology. All active units and many Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units have converted to the F-16C/D.                                                                                                         The F-16 was built under an unusual agreement creating a consortium between the United States and four NATO countries: Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway. These countries jointly produced with the United States an initial 348 F-16s for their air forces. Final airframe assembly lines were located in Belgium and the Netherlands. The consortium’s F-16s are assembled from components manufactured in all five countries. Belgium also provides final assembly of the F100 engine used in the European F-16s. Recently, Portugal joined the consortium. The long-term benefits of this program will be technology transfer among the nations producing the F-16, and a common-use aircraft for NATO nations. This program increases the supply and availability of repair parts in Europe and improves the F-16’s combat readiness.

U.S. Air Force F-16 multirole fighters were deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1991 in support of Operation Desert Storm, where more sorties were flown than with any other aircraft. These fighters were used to attack airfields, military production facilities, Scud missiles sites and a variety of other targets.

During Operation Allied Force, U.S. Air Force F-16 multirole fighters flew a variety of missions to include suppression of enemy air defense, offensive counter air, defensive counter air, close air support and forward air controller missions. Mission results were outstanding as these fighters destroyed radar sites, vehicles, tanks, MiGs and buildings.

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the F-16 has been a major component of the combat forces committed to the war on terrorism flying thousands of sorties in support of operations Noble Eagle (Homeland Defense), Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Iraqi Freedom.                                                                                                                                          General characteristics

5 CH BlitzRCWorks VTOL V-22 Osprey RC Warbird Airplane

  Boeing is apparently working on a large passenger aircraft with vertical takeoff and landing features. The company received a patent for a tilt-rotor design that has room for at least 100 passengers, according to a Business Insider report Thursday. The VTOL plane has potential for both civilian and military use, according to the report. It seems to be inspired in part by the famous two-engine V-22 Osprey, which Boeing and Bell Helicopters developed for the U.S. military in the 1980s, the first of its kind designed for use by the Marines and Air Force. The patent for the unnamed aircraft includes potential uses for commercial flights, military missions or personal transport, according to the report. Its design includes four engines mounted on two fixed wings along with two large rotors attached on the tips for vertical takeoffs and landings.

The company hasn’t revealed details of its intentions for the VTOL design, but a civilian passenger plane with such capabilities will likely raise speculation about the potential for off-airport commercial transportation. “Boeing files tons of patents so this might not even come to fruition,” a Boeing spokesman told Business Insider. “I’m not saying it won’t.” The patented design also calls for lower wings on the airframe compared to the V-22 to allow for passenger exits as well as simpler maintenance, a Seattle Times report notes.                                                                                                                    

                                                                                                                                                       Do you know what VTOL means? Aside from vertical takeoff and landing, it means taking off and landing can be done in a multitude of different terrains. No runway necessary. This model was in the making for about 3 years, with countless hours of development and testing. There were a lot of hurdles in the way, but it’s finally here.                                                                               A market-first, and ground-breaking scale V-22 Osprey with full VTOL and forward flight capabilities. This beauty is built with a high-precision stabilization board, quality electronics, and of course, EPO foam. With its 3-point propulsion system, it manages to fly with unrivaled stability. Plus, the transition to forward flight seamlessly blends with the overall flying experience, making it easier on the pilot.                                                                           Currently there’s nothing like it in the scale and performance department, making this a one of a kind model. Did we mention, no runway necessary? Take it for a spin today!
